Just want to mention... in case recommendations from folks like Dan Harden aren't enough for you... I had the opportunity to visit Allen on his home turf and he blew my socks off several times over. I'm now trying to figure out how to get back to godforsakenportland. Boston to Dallas? Portland's on the way, right?
Thanks for the kind words. I was impressed by your learning ability and rate. Now there
is an ability that pays handsome dividends! But you can't fool me . . . you weren't wearing any socks!!!
We all look forward to your return. I hope it is soon!
p.s. Some folks believe that the "forsaken" are at the top of G-d's "to do" list, which recomends Portland highly! Spring, summer and fall are lovely here (when it isn't raining.)
